Mystery & Suspense • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1955

After the death of her child and the end of her marriage, Hilary Craven has nothing left to lose--or so she believes until she takes on a dangerous intelligence assignment. Hilary, who resembles the late wife of a missing physicist, agrees to take on the woman's identity to help solve a series of mysterious disappearances. She's soon on her own, or so she believes. Emilia Fox's male voices may be gruff, but she's an ace with these Christie cliff-hangers--creating tension and, at times, a romantic atmosphere. She shifts her tone gradually as Hilary's character evolves from grief to steely resolve, drawing listeners into Hilary’s plight. With only her voice and our imaginations to work with, Fox spins this atypical Christie novel into a Hichcockian concoction of suspended disbelief.
